near by. in the here on storm scan three at the local level, tri-state sweep not picking up on anything but gun clutter at this hour but just zoom it out one time and most of west virginia at this point is engulfed in some of that moisture. it is modest moisture it is a clipper system after all but timing is way less than ideal, so lets walk you through more of what this system has up its sleeve for our area. we will go out to the winter weather advisory posted. they are not up just yet they take effect at ten or 11:00 a.m. and depend on what time they will take effect but it is philadelphia including montgomery and lower bucks counties now, those were counties not included until just about an hour and a half ago so now it is updating the coverage zone there but generally it looks like southern tear of the region will be hit hardest with this clipper and with the timing coming it will be coming in the early afternoon and toward evening rush. that is bad timing, obviously.
